Let’s celebrate the faces of current and historic members of the community with this ambitious “Inside Out” public art installation that Augsburg has commissioned as part of the sesquicentennial. Your face could be part of the finished product that starts going up on campus this summer.
Led by Kristin Anderson and Christopher Houltberg, this is a participatory art project that will cover four city blocks and showcase hundreds of faces of people who are part of the Augsburg community. An “Inside Out” photographer has been at many events so far, including Commencement, to capture the faces of Augsburg community members willing to pose.
Woven together, each black and white portrait will create a mesh of faces celebrating, recognizing and honoring the core of the institution: its people. This textile of woven portraits will be a unique opportunity to take part in an international art project empowering community actions.
